We have never been there for the vertical dancing. We just like the area very much as son Charlie (age 34 this year) takes me up some of the more moderate 5.6 to 5.8 routes (I am top roped) each year, maybe for something I did to him when he was young. I am turning 74 in August and am so glad that he wants to do this with us.

Francesca - you have led a most sheltered life. OK "vertical dancing" in this case refers to dancing on a cliff suspended from ropes (belayed).

O-h-h-h-h...I get it.

Guess they had to use something other than "dancing at the end of a rope" since that already means something entirely different in that there Cowboy Country...

Cucotx - thanks for sharing this. Rock climbing at Vedauwoo is puirty durned difficult.

Yep, dancing at the end of a rope does have a different meaning with strianguation handing as opposed to "long drop"

I just looked at the rock climbing when I was there. You won't find me dangling from a rope. Sure fun to watch all the people that do though. I did hike all the trails I could find. I was 73 then.

Elaine and I turn 74 in August and we enjoy hiking around Vedauwoo as well. Those small ponds are quite surprising to find. The immediate trail system is limited but enjoyable. We saw Moose in the area and photographed them when we dispersed camped as we posted earlier on this thread. We are bird watchers and we have seen very few Prairie Falcons but we saw them there.

Last year we boon docked at Senator Wash, at the Imperial Dam LTVA, just north of Yuma. I was not sure how I would like the desert, but with the reservoir and Squaw Lake so close, I felt quite at home and you can't beat the weather 😎. Counting down the days until we return!

Since the O/P asks about Paradise, and since there are several towns in the US named Paradise I will tell you about one of them, or rather it's neighbor.. Paradise, MI, in the Upper Peninsula (Welcome to Paradise, arn't you glad you made it?) is just east of Tahquamenon Falls State Park

Tahquamenon Falls is also just north of the Hiawatha National Forest, and the Tahquamenon river is the "Swiftly Falling Stream" of the poem Song of Hiawatha.. The falls are #2 in GPM second only to Niagra, The water is Golden, the fall is much less (It is possible, but not recommended, to stand under the falls) and the land is basically unspoiled. (long walk from the UPPER FALLS state park to the falls themselves, even longer from Lower falls where the campground is).

One of the most beautiful places in one of our fifty most beautiful states (YUP they are all beautiful)

I would like to return there but not sure a 38'er will fit.

Yoakam Point State Park, Oregon

I saw a link to this park in another thread in irv2.

Has anyone stayed here? In the picture below, you can see the RV park next to a nice beach.

Twin Dikes Campground, Sam Rayburn Reservoir, TX

Twin Dikes Campground Park (U.S. Corps of Engineers) on Sam Rayburn Reservoir has some "no-hookups" campsites on the waterfront. If you have a National Parks Seniors Pass, the no-hookup campsites are $7 per night.
When I camped there a few weeks ago, I did not know the layout of the place and chose site #27. It was OK.


If I had it to do over again, I would choose campsite #34. What an awesome view of the lake.

By far my best CG is OH Ridge! FS campground (no hookups but water and a dump are available) at June Lake CA in the High Sierras. Sites are available that over look June Lake and the mountains are visible from every site.
